Hi, just bought an HO slot car set. How high of a table should I put the track on?

Anywhere between 30" (standard table height) & 36" (standard counter height) would be fine. I think 30" is a little low when standing, but if you are planning use by children, I would recommend staying closer to 30".

Thank You! Do most adults stand or sit when racing HO slot cars?

I usually stand so it easier to retrieve deslots.

Thanks again. One more question . Is it ok to put several tables together to get the size I need
or would this have an effect on the slot car performance?

sure, you can use separate tables/platforms. might make it easier to change layout in future if you so desire.

The ideal height is so you can easily reach all areas of the track (and the run off areas in case of a de-slot.) 🤙
